Book Description

This book, The Power and Sympathy of Christ, contains six studies on John chapter 11—one of the most remarkable chapters in all the New Testament. It deals with themes most useful and interesting to all professing believers.

Just like the rest of the human race, Christians are ‘born to trouble as the sparks fly upward’ (Job 5:7). They live in a dying world and are just as likely to suffer sickness and death as their fellow men and women. Year after year the gaps in their family circles increase; heaven seems to become more full, and earth more empty. That is why, according to J. C. Ryle, it is never too soon to look steadily at such great subjects as sorrow, sickness, death, the grave, and the power and sympathy of Christ.

This little book, drawn from Ryle’s larger work, Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, will help you do just that.
